The city of Anjozorobe is nestled in the landscapes typical of the Central Highlands, north of the capital, Antananarivo

My review

Surrounded by hills, rice fields and forests, Anjozorobe is famous for its forest corridor, extremely rich in animal and plant species and which includes an area that has been classified as a Protected Harmonious Landscape since 2005. The reserve is home to a dozen species of lemurs, a considerable number of orchids and a multitude of birds, reptiles and amphibians.

Managed by the Malagasy association FANAMBY, the Anjozorobe-Agavo protected area is the result of a desire to presrve the biodiversity of the region and limit the devastation of deforestation by creating new sources of revenue to local populations. To do this, an ecotourism centre was established, allowing nature-loving visitors to be closer to the forest and to discovery tours, thus creating a source of employment for the region's inhabitants.
